Top 10 games, which had the best looking and realistic water.
I did not realize that uncharted had that good graphics. I am just amazed but I was expecting Lair to be on that list maybe in 5th or 4th place...oh and final fantasy X as well...
Best shoes in game? C'mon! I have Uncharted and I do appreciate the nice looking water effects but I do not think its anything worth making a top-ten list for. Merry Christman!! (or whaterver anyone may celebrate)
Uh huh...Name a game that has better.
Go away Tanod
I have played UNCHARTED, CRYSIS and BIOSHOCK. CRYSIS and BIOSHOCK have way better water effects then UNCHARTED. Another fanboy created video, what did you expect. @ TANOD ... "even Bioshock looks like a wii game vs UNCHARTED" ... are you kidding me. You sir, need to evolve. Until then, IGNORE list.
Bioshock does have hyper graphics, but not the same as Uncharted, Bioshock is a great game in many ways, but u cant tell that the water is realistic when u are in a ego perspective and cant even see your body. It should have been water effects on the weapons and on the arm or the plasmids but there were no effect. B(
uncharted had crap looking water, and Graphics and AI? when all you look like graphically is a copy of Tomb radier legend, and AI? lol its awesome when enemies jump out infront of you with a shotgun type weapon and you have a lil pistol and you....WIN.
you must be the one that's retarted,hell uncharted has good graphics but bishoch is a lot better.you are just a sony ps3 fan boy who will never admit something is good unless it's on the ps3 and it's just childish. i hate sony and i'm not planing on buying a ps3 but unlike you i'll admit that the ps3 is a good system with good games but unchated water graphics isn't better then bioshock.i have a friend with a ps3 and he is the only person i know that has one and i played uncharted on it and unlike you he's not bias,he admit when something is better even if it's on the 360. i know that the ps3 have games that their graphics are better then the 360 but uncharted isn't one of them.i bet that you are a type of person that thinks evey game on the ps3 is better then all the 360 games ,hell i know that you think that halo sux and have bad graphics and that's just your opinion,the facts say that halo is one of the greatest game that was evey made and it not only broke sale records for games but for the whole intertainment industries and that's something that sony never did.you are just jealous that halo isn't on the ps3 and if it was you would be saying that it's one of the greatest game that was ever made. all of the 360 fans wish that some exclusive games on the ps3 was on the 360 but want admit it because they are bias and childish just like you but i'll admit that the ps3 have some exclusive games that i wish was on the 360 and if they was i would be the first one to buy them like killlzone 2 and some others but i don't like mgs because i played them before and i don't like it and i don't like r&c because it's just a childish game,it's something that should be on the wii. all the ps3 fans wish that the ps3 had some games that's exclusive to the 360 but they want admit it because they are bias and childish like you,they want admit that the 360 have any good games and have good exclusive that they like to have.i know that they wish that games like Ninja Gaiden 2 and Kingdom Under Fire™: Circle of Doom and some others was on the ps3 and i know that they have some that you don't like to. i bet you that you are one of the ps3 fans that say that the 360 doesn't have any good exclusives coming out next year,well i like to know where you been at because the 360 have just as many good exclusives coming out as the ps3 and here is just a few of them and not one of them is a xbox live game because i see a lot of people that's listing the psn games.here they are. 1-dark messiah of might and magic 2-halo wars 3-Kingdom Under Fire™: Circle of Doom 4-Lost Odyssey 5-Ninja Gaiden® 2 6-Too Human™ 7-splinter cell conviction 8-Possession 9-fable2 10-house of dead 11-huxly 12-Infinite Undiscovery 13-All Points Bulletin 14-Cry-On 15-Project Offset 16-banjo kazooie 17-Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures 18-Beautiful Katamari 19-Age of Pirates: Captain Blood 20-Alive 21-Ancient World Online 22-Dead Island 23-Elveon and they have some others to. what i'm trying to say is that all the 360 fans and ps3 fans like you that think that the system they have is better then the other system and the other system doesn't have any good games are just bias and childish because all of them wish and want some games that on the other system and they want admit that each system is better at certain things then the other system but they want admit it and it's just childish,it reminds me of one time i went to pick up my son from 4th grade and i heard one boy saying my daddy is better then yours and this is the same damn thing and i think that it's stupid for people to fight over a game system. the 360 does some things better then the ps3 and the ps3 does some things better then then the 360,like it or not it's just the fact.the 360 and ps3 or both good system with good games and they will both be around for a long long time,as long as people want to play video games that's just fact.all of the ps3 and 360 fans wish that they had some exclusive that the other system has and they know that each system does something a little better then the other. and it's time they stop acting like kids and admit it.
can't read yours GodofThunder sorry, you have one bubble. Probably some ridiculous comment listing some 360 games... am i correct?
TANOD head is so far up sony @ss he is the wiki definition of a fanboy. Blindly talking sh1t about games hes never played. Saying Bioshock looks like a Wii game is like saying Uncharted looks like a Wii game. Grow up TANOD most of us are getting sick of you posts they are so the F out there you have lost all credibility.
ps3 40GB > 360 premium back to topic i played bioshock in high end pc and i finished it, i have to say it has amazing graphics and also effects but the water on uncharted is also superb! i didnt play uncharted but from the videos it looks very good! but its not true to say uncharted makes bioshock looks like a wii game! u can judge that only if u play it on high end pc and uncharted! dont know about the 360 version but i think its inferior to the pc version!
If any of yous owned Uncharted or even cared to notice(yes its very hard to see in the videos), Uncharteds water affects arn't just a flat plain with a water texture stuck on top like every other game out there, a lot of the river affects in Uncharted actually simulate water. It moves the right direction and bobs up and down when something heavy moves through the water(seas arn't affected by heavy objects), it changes direction correctly when it hits rocks in rapids, it affects your gameplay when you try to steer a jet ski through the rapids. And drying clothes is pretty cool in that game too(best i've seen).
Hey Just Got Uncharted Yesterday And I have To Say Its The Best Looking Game Ive Seen To Date...and no i havent played crysis nor do i wanr to..all im sayin is i agree That Uncharted Should Be Numero Uno...
I think the rain in F1:CE deserves a mention, the rain boucing agaisnt the screen on that game is unreal.
i really want to play that game :)
Far Cry got good water effect too...
aND aGE oF eMPIRES 3? aNYONE?
1998's Forsaken still has the coolest water effects I have ever seen...although it was barely used in the game, it looked awesome...not sure if any of you played that game or not, it was a hover bike game sort of like descent...pretty good at the time... overall though there is no denying uncharted's "wetness"...the water is near perfect...and the way characters get accurately soaked (whether wading around, swimming, or in the rain) is unmatched... I pretty much agree with that list for the most part...except older games like Saints Row and Mario Sunshine...if they were only comparing it to that time period, I guess they were good...But Saints Row?...haha...no...
they got to Super Mario Sunshine and Saints Row. At least I agree with number 1. I only have an SD tv and it still looks good on that.
UNCHARTED is the best looking game ever created on CONSOLES/EVEN PC. Crysis has a great foliage. Uncharted has great floiage and Amazing Buildings and forts Uncharted has next gen lighting which is not present in Crysis
This is not news. This is a user-made video! This is not interesting. This is made by Joe down the road. Little Bob with his Windows Movie Maker. For pete's sake. Is there any way of filtering out the crap from this site?
Yea I agree, its not even a website feature, which I wouldn't mind. It's just a usermovie off GT... When stuff like this gets featured on the front page it makes me wonder...
LOL I agree. Wave race 64 has better water effects than Mario. I should make up my own movie for water effects.
Yeah, what a waste of time. They didn't even show video from Metroid Prime... they could've shown the rain running down the visor at least! And most of the water effects in the videos were flat and uninteresting. The only ones that caught my eye were the part in Bioshock with the explosion, and the fistfight in Drake's. Other than that, rather dull and horribly edited.
bubble up 4 u. I can't believe crap like this gets approved and people are actually arguing over it. Best water graphics? It appears that anyone with a blog and an opinion can make it on N4G as news.
Most useless lists made about games....this one takes it for sure.
whoever makes the list ---it doesnt matter UNCHARTED will top all list focusing on Graphics @genzo we all know GT comparisons, GS reviews and 1up reviews Too bad UNCHARTED has beaten COD 4 to become IGN's best PS3 game http://www.ign.com COD 4 on PS3 scored 9.6 at GAMEZONE and 9.5 on X360 The PS3 version is better
Too bad Uncharted doesn't make it to any GOTY lists. Here's water for you, I guess the guy that made the video forgot about this footage. http://www.gametrailers.com...
stfu nobody cares what you think. stop quoting IGN and make your own mind up. idiot.
uncharted does have awesome water effects, but what about warhawks water, that looks good too, way better than saint rows at least
Seriously....Definitely cracks a top 10! Saints Row? No, they meant H3.
Uncharted is simply beautiful, no arguments there :) I would've had Mass Effect in there though, the water is phenomenal.
just cause looked that good bought off ebay for 13dollars
half life 2 or drakes fortune
Uncharted Drakes Fortune
HL2 water looks like @ss. In one of the levels you can look out over a cliff into the ocean, and clearly see that its just hundreds of morphing square textures with env-maps running into each other. It really killed the feel of the game for me when I saw that. Maybe the new versions are better, but that's how it was in HL2 for the PC at top specs.
The list was stupid...for one, if you're gonna put games like Super Mario Sunshine and MGS3 then keep the whole list classic and put Waverace or Splashdown or T&C Surf Designs...all of those other water games on there...but MGS3's water probably shouldn't be on the list to begin with. And at the end of the video when he's totally amazed about his clothes getting wet in Uncharted...Lara Croft's clothes get wet in Tomb Raider Legend AND they drip. In Uncharted, certain parts of his clothes get wet depending on which parts actually touch water, and thats really cool...but there's no dripping. It also annoyed me that they didn't show the intro scene on the boat that really shows Uncharted's water, and the cutscene after where they show them jumping from the boat and swimming to Sully's plane...they showed the little part of the plane flying around, but anyways lame.
I agree. Waverace 64 deserves to be on the list. That game ruled when it came out.
Waverace for sure! That was the first time I was floored by water in a videogame!
No big surprise here.
That game had insane rain effects.
Wait a sec, this top 10 is totally rubbish. When they put Super Mario Sunshine in there and Gears of War is missing with it's rain and waterlevels then its rubbish!
I kinda agree...Super Mario Sunshine does have some good fluid effects for a Gamecube game, but the list was inconsistent. Either you're gonna keep it classic, or keep it in this generation and say what's REALLY the best looking water in game. I would've actually put Oblivion and Gears on the list since I liked the rain and canal levels.
They forgot Ecco The Dolphin for the Sega Genesis.
BioShock should have taken the first prize. It has the best water IMO.
Bioshock has a small environment. even despite that it is nowhere near UNCHARTED in terms of graphics
u r right bioshock has the best water effects handsdown. Dont listen to tanod he is a deranged sony fanboy the list was about water effects nothing else retard so with that being said uncharted compared to bioshock in WATER EFFECTS= a bioshock win.
The water on Bioshock is the best I've seen. Irrational had a whole team that just worked on the water and it shows. I still fool people who haven't played the game and when you start off after the plane crash in the water people still think it's a CGI cutscene. I would of also included the COD4 opening level on the ship(360 version).. The water effects are better than many on this list. Uncharted looks beautiful and I can see it being in the top 3 but I don't agree it has the best water. I do think it's cool how Drakes pants get wet, but that doesn't make the water better than Bioshock.
Good one on the intro and plane crash but the really impressive part of water effects is how the underwater city feels wet. The parts with crack on walls and such with water rushing in or the toilets sorrounded by water are simply amazing. Uncharted's water is also great and indeed should be among top 3.
You're wrong MK. Technically at least. You might like the dark water artistically in Bioshock...but technically it doesn't hold a candle to Uncharted - especially console version against console version. Plus if you've played through Uncharted and seen the refraction of light on the water (including orange sunsets)...the movement and reaction to vehicles and characters, objects and characters getting wet and drying in real-time, reflecting a huge town in a 6million polygon level, and the transparency to see objects below...you may agree that these technical accomplishments put it artistically above Bioshock in your estimations as well. Merry Xmas :)
While my choice is still BioShock for besdt water, I must say that I didn't play Uncharted much as opposed to Bio but from what I saw, Bio felt more natural. Marry Chritmas :)
Crysis in Dx10 you actually see clouding in the water and dirt particles and sunrays coming through it and fish and turtles depending on the map youre playing.
Like other dude said, Tomb Raider got wet and dripped years ago. Bioshock deserves #1, it's amazing the whole world is deep in water, you see leaks, ripples and everything. The only thing missing is a third person perspective that shows your character.
There are only two games in existence that get light in water, water physics, and object / character interaction with water realistically correct: Crysis and Uncharted. everything else that comes close is just that: Close. Edit** How can anyone disagree with me? That's factual truth! Yeah there are some games that do one or two of those things, but only Crysis and Uncharted get the whole package right!
only Crysis and Uncharted have next gen water
uncharted rules the water world. period!
uncharted @ #1, WTF give me a break. its only sony-fanboys hwo agree with that.
If you knew the technical properties of Uncharted's water, and also maybe if you'd played the game before saying that, then you'd know that Uncharted's water is highly realistic. World and character reflections? - check Underwater light refraction? - check Physical interaction with objects and characters? - check Water soaks characters and objects? - check Wave Reflection? - check Object bouyancy? - check Crysis has these things as well, but capable in higher resolutions, of course. Edit** Once again...how people can disagree with fact is unknown to me...
You just made up a bunch of technical terms lol! Bioshock has: * Wall streaming water physics * Fire reflections * Nighttime adaptation behavioural water See how silly it sounds?
Hey titan the same can be said for splinter cell chaos theory also
For reals though, he was listing all of the things that make water believable. Bioshock just doesn't cut it. Crysis on highest setting and Uncharted do it right. Your "wall streaming" is simply a scrolling texture. a pretty texture, but kinda lame with no real physics attached. Uncharted's water interacts with the user and the environment.
Tut tut Jenzo. You know better than that. Gotta remember that most PS3 fans have played Bioshock on the PC and you'll only see limited interaction with the player at DX10. It does look nice and helps a lot with the environment
Objects in Crysis cant soak up water nor can cloths get wet. Get your facts straight. And the reason for the disagree is that some for the "facts" you say are wrong namely the one i mentioned
crysis and uncharted. no contest here.
You guys go back to bioshock. Halo 3 also had impressive water, much more then saints row. They also forgot FAR CRY and ecco the dolphin. I was more impressed with Wave Race 64 then super mario sunshine.
Bioshock's water was clearly looping animation ( I stood there and watched it for 10 minutes...I know) I was not impressed by Bioshock's water at all, to be honest. The atmosphere was great, and the look of the water helped, but it just wasn't spectacular. You know, come to think of it, the animations in Bioshock were choppy, in general. If you don't believe me, look at a sentry bot flying around and watch as it turns....it turns like it's on a octagonal cog. Technically, Warhawk's water is superior to Bioshock's, in that it is generated in real time, and relies on no animations whatsoever.
thanks for your information! I wish if everybody here talks wisely and knowlegable as you.
I know it's blasphemy around here talking good about Halo 3, but it does have some really cool water effects.
If warhawks water doesn't rely on animation then how does it move. If it doesn't then I guess that makes the water with animation the winner since it's not static, I think you just worded that wrong. I don't like this list because it was full of old as balls games and doa xbv2, I know the game sucks but the water in that game is great and this list didn't have any waveracer or anything actually set in water except for bioshock. It was just dumb.
